Oscart & Chaos - Huverjende swarte skientme, oer my Hinne

Multidisciplinary artist / photographer Sandra de Groot and painter / visual artist Oscar Venema have worked together for some time. Their work is a blend of photography and powerful, raw gestures in paint, unruly, yet sensitive and expressive images with a sensory immediacy.

Their most recent work is a landscape-portrait series with horses, which invites the viewer to share a mutual fascination for reality versus surreality. The combination of the two disciplines permits them to create images that transcend reality and enter a world of symbols and archetypes.

Kerkje De Kapelle

De Kapelle lies on the Jabikspaad, the pilgrims' route to Santiago de Compostella, and is a valuable historical site. In the 13th century the monk Dodo lived a simple life in the tiny chapel there and – so it is written – healed people. After his death he was canonized. In the woods near Haskerdijken there is a commemorative/wishing wall, made by the artist Tineke Fischer, where you can leave your intentions for Dodo. Fischer presently rents De Kapelle as a studio.
